Mid Ulster Council Awards £20K In First Round Of COVID-19 Emergency Community Support Grants

1 Mins read

Mid Ulster District Council has awarded more than £20K in the first round of funding to be made in its special COVID-19 community support scheme.

A total of 24 local volunteer groups are to receive grants, ranging from £250 to £3,000, to support their delivery of a COVID-19 response in their local communities

The emergency grant programme for the community and voluntary sector was launched at the beginning of April to support a range of activities from deliveries to the vulnerable to the production of local PPE, and is additional to the £400K package of measures already announced by the Council.

Chair of the Council, Councillor Martin Kearney, welcomed the first allocation of grants through the programme:

“The level of community and voluntary support in Mid Ulster is second to none, so ensuring that the work of these groups, so vital to meet the needs of some of our most vulnerable people, is sustained and sustainable is a key element of the Council’s overall package of support.

“I congratulate all the groups, and thank them all most sincerely, for their on-going dedication and their unfailing community spirit”.

The COVID-19 Emergency Fund is a rolling programme and applications can be made at any time. Visit www.midulstercouncil.org/emergencyfundcovid19 for further information and to apply.
